Photo hosted by Western North Carolina Heritage

Center image is a close-up of the Climax builder's plate (in the photo at top) with the shop number 578 visible.
Bottom image is a close-up of the "Boice & Buchanan" lettering visible on the tender in the photo at top.

The same locomotive appears in the frame immediately following this one. In that photo (below), the condition of the locomotive and its lettering seem to be new or close to that condition.  In that photo, the locomotive carries the #578 road number.  The condition of the locomotive in the photo at upper left shows much more use and fading of the lettering. Further, the road number of the locomotive in this current frame is #1.   It can be concluded that Boice & Buchanon (B&B) took delivery of the locomotive from Climax with its road number being #578 and B&B later changed that road number to #1.
